Young midfielder Terry Taylor has officially left Wolverhampton Wanderers, joining League One Burton Albion on a two-and-a-half year contract.

The 19-year-old leaves Molineux to become Albion’s seventh signing of the January window.

Wolves agreed to release Taylor from his contract, with the two clubs agreeing a financial package.

The starlet made just one first-team appearance for the club – against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup last season.

Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said of the club’s capture of Taylor (official website): “He has big potential and the sky is the limit – whatever he wants to achieve, he will achieve.

 

“He’s not played that many men’s football games yet but we’re really excited that he’s chosen us to come to for two-and-a-half years, there was a lot of interest in him.”

Taylor added: “It feels great and I’m delighted to be here. I can’t wait to get playing.

“I know Burton have been watching me for a couple of seasons, but I think the real interest came from the new manager.”

Permanent move a surprrise

The talented Taylor has left permanently, which does feel like a bit of a surprise.

The star has only had half a season on loan at Grimbsy Town so far in his career, and might have also spent the second half of 2020/21 on loan in a bid to prove himself as a potential first-team option.

Wolves clearly felt comfortable letting him go though, and hopefully he’ll now get regular minutes in senior football.
